By Patrick Madden

D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty will deliver his "State of the District" Address later this morning.

The speech will be delivered at the Deanwood Community Recreation Center, a new facility slated to open later this year. Right now, it’s very busy with construction, and the mayor may have picked this spot to give his remarks for two reasons: one, it gives him a chance to show off what looks to be a very impressive rec center. The second reason is Deanwood is in Ward 7, which is where his main rival, D.C. Council Chair Vincent Gray is from and once represented on the council.

The mayor is expected to highlight some of the accomplishments from the past year – which could include rising test scores for elementary school students – the lowest homicide rate in four decades and the brand new teachers contract .
